Mona, the talented feather dancer of the Moulin Rouge

For today's 100 Proof Press design piece alittle something different. Is it a collage, mixed media piece altered giant ATC? I guess it is all of the above. Thought I'd make something steamy, since it is sooo cold here this morning, a very low 28 degrees! I used it being from the north, but I'm sure all the southern belles, alligators and pretty birds will be wearing their woolies today. Also over at Simon Says Stamp and Show this week's challenge is "Anything Goes", I'm sure  this Mona would agree to that too! LOL.

I made this creation in pieces then assembled it. The small corset #5394 came first, after stamping and fussy cutting, I added water colored paint and Stickles, both red and gold. The ATC 2 pane frame from Retro Cafe Art came next and was filled with a vintage image of the Moulin Rouge, again paint and lots of Stickles.
The other images were cut out and now it was time for assembly. All the paper pieces were glued together, some red pearls were added and layered on a huge glitter feather used for Christmas decor. It was plastic, so I could bend it into a great shape. It represents the feathers on Mona's costume!

Hope you will dance up a storm this week.
artfully yours, gerri
